The largest genomic institute of the world, BGI Shenzhen, China (hereinafter BGI), together with Reproductive & Genetic Hospital CITIC-XIANGYA (hereinafter CITIC-XIANGYA) announced today that they have successfully applied Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to detect in vitro fertilized (IVF) embryos with genetic abnormalities.
Next generation sequencing (NGS) techniques have allowed scientists to sequence DNA faster and cheaper than ever before. The technology is also now being used to screen embryos for in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the first child to ever pass though that screening process was recently born in the US.
In light of recent research developing a test to screen for Inborn Errors of Metabolism disorders, Kwiksure examines if genetic screening tests could be covered by insurers. Hong
Mothers commonly talk to their children about genetic test results even if they test positive for a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation, which sharply increases a woman's risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.
